Thetis Bay, CVE-90 Association was first engineered and put
into motion by Tom DeCarlo of Ironwood, Michigan in 1985 and
through his conviction and dedication, the first reunion was
held there in 1986, hosted by Tom.
fifth reunion in Portland, Oregon in 1990, the association
was renamed to include all of the ship's active duty
designations as USS Thetis Bay, CVE-90, CVHA-1, LPH-6

North Carolina as USS Thetis Bay, CVE-90, CVHA-1, LPH-6
Association, Incorporated. On January 22, 1991, the
association was approved as a non-profit organization.
fifth reunion there were 29 shipmates. Since the decision to
include the other two designations, CVHA-1 and LPH-6, we
have grown to approximately 170 members.
We have not
only grown in numbers but also in devotion and dedication to
"CARRY ON" the traditions of the United States Navy and the
USS Thetis Bay every year in honor of our service and our
"Ship's Bell" ceremony in remembrance of our shipmates.
